She Left Me!

Uwwwahhhhhh! Pebbles has gone home today! And I miss her! Uwwahhhhhh!

I had to send Pebble back to my boss today cos both wifey and me are going to be busy the next few weeks and we won't really have time to look after her. We don't want her staying at home all alone while we're out doing our stuff so the best option was to send her back.

I know it's for the best but I still feel pretty down about it. We've had her for more than two months and we've both gotten so very attached to her and I think she's gotten attached to us too. I hope that she doesn't think that we don't like her anymore and that's why we sent her away.

She's like part of the family now and we'll miss her pitter patter footsteps as she ambles along the room sniffing at anything that catches her fancy. I know I'll miss having her sit by our chairs (well, mostly next to wifeys chair) while we surf the internet. I know I'll miss having her jump up the bed and rub her snotty nose all over my pillow ... siggghhh ... I never thought I would get so attached to her.

Oh well, at least the good news is, my boss said I can take her back when we finish doing our stuff so that's something to look forward to. I hope he doesn't change his mind or anything. It was really painful having to leave her in the office with my boss after work today.

Ok, I really don't feel like writing too much seeing as how I'm so not in the mood so I'll just leave you with some pictures of her.

  3. They are quite ok alone at home.. as long as you feed them in the morning.. and come back in the evening to feed them again..cos they sleep most of the time if there's no action around. Poor girl.. hopefully you'll still see her in the office. Aiyaaaaaaaaaaa..

  21. Ahahhhaha! So I'm not the only one who allows my dog to romp on my bed!

    By the way, the dog will get used to being alone at home you know. I used to worry about mine being lonely at home but Rusty's so used to seeing us leave for work/school that he just goes to the room and sleep. Maybe he's happy to be alone sometimes.
